Are you part of any community? Well, I am!
Let me describe first “What Is a Community?”
Community is a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
I am from India and I am part of an "Indian Association" in AIT and this is one of the community I like very much.
In this community Indian students of Asian Institute of Technology, that we AITIS are a part of, organize different types of events or you can say activities. Each semester they elect a president from student/staff families who is in charge of organizing different events. Some of the activities that are organized are Welcome parties, Farewell parties, and Indian festivals.
The association organizes welcome parties for the new AIT students and teaching faculties. Since these gatherings are for Indians, only Indians are supposed to come and meet each other, get introduced to new people, and enjoy the party together which brings great fun for everyone.
The association also organizes festivals like Diwali which is one of my favorite festivals. In Diwali they try their best to make wonderful decorations which look very pretty. I really like the Rangoli designs that they make!
They also hold prayers for some small festivals like Janmashtami in the Hindu prayer room in AIT. Janmashtami is a celebration of one of our gods’ birthday. They prepare for the prayer and the activities.
The association also organizes farewell parties. In these parties they give gifts to those students who have graduated and say goodbye to them!
The advantages of being in this community is that I get to know more people and make new friends! Not only that I always have fun and learn new things.
But there are some disadvantages also. When activities are arranged on week days it gets hard for me to join because I have to stay at home and finish up my homework. Sometimes celebrations are held far away from our place and if my parents have some other commitments it gets hard for me to join them.
Well this was about me. What about you? If you are part of any such community do share with me in the comment section below.
